1. Stephen Wiltshire
All it took for British artist Stephen Wiltshire to memorize and draw intricate details of the Tokyo, Rome, Hong Kong, Dubai, and New York City skylines was a brief helicopter ride over each city. Wiltshire, who is autistic and didn’t speak until age five (his first two words were “paper” and “pen”), has a highly-developed photographic memory—in his panoramic drawing of Rome, he recreated the exact number of columns of the Pantheon. These hidden talents of 24 U.S. presidents may be impressive, but they’ve got nothing on Wiltshire.
2. Wim Hof
Using the Buddhist meditation technique Tummo, Dutch daredevil Wim Hof keeps his body temperature steady while enduring extremely cold conditions. Hof, whose feats have earned him the nickname Iceman, has completed several marathons and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in sub-freezing temperatures wearing only shorts. Hof holds twenty cold-endurance world records, including, at one hour, 13 minutes and 48 seconds, the record for the longest ice bath.
3. Michel Lotito (The Garbage Man)
Michel Lotito began eating unusual material as a teenager, at around 16 years of age, and he performed publicly beginning in 1966. He had an eating disorder known as pica, which is a psychological disorder characterized by an appetite of substances that are largely non-nutritive. Doctors determined that Lotito also had a thick lining in his stomach and intestines which allowed his consumption of sharp metal without suffering injury. Lotito also had digestive juices that were unusually powerful, meaning that he could digest the unusual materials.
Lotito's performances involved the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and other materials. He disassembled, cut up, and consumed items such as bicycles, shopping carts, televisions, and a Cessna 150, among other items. The Cessna 150 took roughly two years to be "eaten", from 1978 to 1980. Lotito claimed not to suffer ill effects from his consumption of substances typically considered poisonous. When performing, he ingested approximately 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) of material daily, preceding it with mineral oil and drinking considerable quantities of water during the meal. It is estimated that between 1959 and 1997, Lotito "had eaten nearly nine tons of metal."
4. Veronica Seider ( Nocular Girl)
Veronica Seider’s super power sounds like a plot of a film. Veronica has an eyesight that redefines the human eye capability. While some squint to read close enough writing, Veronica can see for miles. She can see clearly up to 1.6 km away! She holds the record for being able to see the smallest of objects at great distances without the assistance of technology.
Normal eyes have visual acuity of 20/20 while Veronica’s acuity was around 20/2. She can easily distinguish people from far away (1 mile) and can also measure their relative distance from her position. Apart from this, Veronica’s eye sight can also be compared with a telescope. She claims to see the colors that constitute to make a frame in colored television sets.
Science says that any color is made out of 3 primary colors- red, blue and green. Normal eyes can see color as a product formed by the mixture of primary colors in various proportions. Unfortunate people who are blind cannot perceive color at all.

5. Ben Underwood (Bat Man)
He Can see using Human Echolocation. Ben lost his eyes to cancer and is completely blind. However, using a series of clicking noises Ben is able to navigate the world around him.
